‘A‘ala Park welcomes new off-leash dog park

HONOLULU – The latest off-leash dog park is now open on O‘ahu after Mayor Kirk Caldwell, Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) Director Michele Nekota, and the Mayor’s Office of Culture and the Arts (MOCA) Executive Director Misty Kela‘i led a blessing ceremony today.

Located at ‘A‘ala Park, the approximately 10,000 square foot off-leash dog park features sections for small and large dogs.

The dog park was made possible through a public-private partnership between the city and the ‘A‘ala Dog Park Association, a non-profit organization. 

Fencing and concrete pads were gifted by the association at a cost of just over $40,000, while various city departments assisted in the design, landscaping, and permitting work.

“Through initiatives like Kākou for Parks we have shown the public that we care about our parks, and we want them to care too,” said Mayor Kirk Caldwell. “Today it’s about more caring, like American Savings Bank moving in across the street, and what the ‘A‘ala Dog Park Association has done. We want them and the community to be a part of our parks, and to come and celebrate life. I am truly grateful for all of their involvement.” 

Reopened following a maintenance closure earlier this winter, ‘A‘ala Park recently experienced improvements to the grass fields, comfort station, play court, and play apparatus, many of which are part of the mayor’s Kākou for Parks initiative.

This is the fifth off-leash dog park on O‘ahu managed by the Department of Parks and Recreation. For a list of the dog parks click here. The dog park hours will reflect the park closure hours, with the facility open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
